New Stills from ‘The Avengers’ Look a Little More Cheesy and a Little Less Epic

The Avengers

Check out these new stills from the upcoming film The Avengers directed by Joss Whedon. When the first Iron Man film, starring Robert Downey Jr., first hit theaters, I couldn’t wait to see The Avengers film. Sam Jackson showing up at the end as Nick Fury was great. Then my desire to see the film started to fade when Iron Man 2 was released.

Now, after last year’s superhero disappointment, I’m a little more standoffish on seeing this team-up flick. Thor, starring Chris Hemsworth, was “meh” at best. Captain America: The First Avenger was an “okay” movie, but it served as little more than a prequel. Thankfully, Marvel’s The Avengers has nothing to do DC Comics’ Green Lantern film, which easily took worst superhero flick of 2011.

What I would like to see is a Hawkeye film that focuses solely on Jeremy Renner’s character. At least that way, the writers can focus less on the powers and more on the story.

The good news is we don’t have to suffer through Thor’s relationship with Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) again (which oddly felt like Anakin Skywalker and Padmé in Star Wars Episodes II & III). This film will be a non-stop Avengers versus Loki battle, plus a mysterious “other” alien that may be a Skrull, Kree or one of Asgard’s other mythical baddies. But, does anyone really care?

How excited are you for The Avengers?
